Alan's Veggie Garden Guide

 Alan's Veggie Garden is about Vegetable Gardens. A vegetable gardens (also known as a vegetable patch or vegetable plot) is a garden that exists to grow vegetables and other plants useful for human consumption, in contrast to a flower garden that exists for aesthetic purposes.Alan's Veggie Garden

The picture is Alan's grandmother in her garden.  Up until high school, Alan's family had a vegetable garden.  It wasn't like his grandparents that lived in one home almost their entire married life.  Alan can always remember their garden.  They even had a small chicken coop, and it was common to get up early with granddad and help him when they came to visit.

A vegetable garden typically includes a compost heap, and several plots or divided areas of land, intended to grow one or two types of plant in each plot. It is usually located to the rear of a property in the back garden. Many families have home kitchen and vegetable gardens that they use to make food. In World War II, people had gardens called a 'victory garden' which provided food to families and thus freed up resources for the war effort.

With the increased interest in organic and sustainable living, many people are turning to vegetable gardening as a supplement to their family's diet. Food grown in your own backyard, uses up little if any fuel for shipping, and the grower can be sure of what exactly was used to grow it. Organic horticulture, or organic gardening, has become increasingly popular for the modern home gardener.

There are many types of vegetable gardens. Potagers, a garden in which vegetables, herbs and flowers are grown together, has become more popular than the more traditional rows or blocks.
